Today I couldn't be more excited to introduce Emmy, our newest contributor at Slender Kitchen. Emmy and I met through Instagram when I saw her amazing account @weightforit_ (seriously, head over there and follow her immediately!) Her feed was full of drool-worthy recipes full of healthy ingredients and delicious meal ideas. Imagine things like Chocolate Swirl Pumpkin Bars, Roasted Salmon with Peanut Soba Noodles, Shrimp Fajita Spaghetti Squash Boats. Plus for anyone who follows Weight Watchers, she always includes SP. Emmy will be sharing her recipes on Slender Kitchen and we can't wait for you to try her healthy creations.
A fall and winter staple for me will always be chili. I make this when I want to have something to quickly grab throughout the week that is hot and can satisfy my cravings.
My chili is simple and delicious, but really serves as a base because I dress it up with toppings or sides. Then all of a sudden, I’ve created different meals. I turn my chili into a breakfast by topping it with a fried egg and roasted sweet potatoes. Or, for lunch or dinner, I add my Greek Yogurt Cilantro Lime topping, crushed tortilla chips, cheese, and hot sauce! I love my chili because of the endless topping possibilities that make each bowl feel like a different meal! It’s the dish that keeps giving.
In terms of toppings, there are so many options. I usually add avocado and reduced fat shredded cheese. I also love micro-greens! This might be an Austin, TX thing, but they have so much flavor packed into them, I always throw them in. My favorite microgreens are basil, mustard, or arugula micro greens! Anything can be a topping (rice, eggs, Greek yogurt, tortilla chips, hot sauce, etc.) Just know the serving of chili alone is 217 calories/4 SP to start!
